87 190E 2.3 trans & throttle cable adjustments

Working through the project 190E I noticed that the cable for the transmission attaching to the throttle linkage is very loose.

Is this normal? What is the the right adjustment?

Additonally, the throttle cable seemed a bit tight. I did back it off so that the throttle catch does go down into the little "elbow".

Any procedures or adjustment settings would be appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

Haasman

Hmm.. didn't realise the transmission was made aware of the throttle position..? Thought it was all vacuum-operated.

Interested to hear people's ideas on this.

I will take a picture and post it later today. It is the cable below the throttle cable. It has a red dust cover where the cable terminates at the throttle connection.
